Manchester City might have to give up their chase of Wolfsburg midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne as the German club have told Manchester City that they would only let the Belgian go if they receive at least 50 million Euros.
De Bruyne has become quite a star since joining Wolfsburg from Chelsea and has become a top target for a few European heavyweights but his current employers are trying desperately to hold on to the 22 year old who provided 21 assists last season in the Bundesliga, setting a new assists record. Manchester City have been after De Bruyne for a while but Wolfsburg have played hardball and even rejected a 40 million Euro bid for the player a few weeks ago. With Manchester City still trying to move for the forward, Wolfsburg decided to set an asking price. According to the Daily Star that price tag is 50 million Euros.
Manchester City have already spent about 62 million Euros on the Purchase of Raheem Sterling and a 50 million Euro outlay for De Bruyne could see their transfer spending rise well above 100 million Euros for what would be a fourth straight season
